    Walking in Mallorca

    Super guide, entertaining, experienced, and great information. Accommodation questionable

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Every walk was awesome and than was down to Edward and his knowledge of the island, of the fauna and flora and of the super views.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Awesome

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    It makes a difference if your fit, and good at walking on rocky paths and up mountains, and lots of them....

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    The choice of accommodation is questionable. Bizarre but we was upgraded for the first half, which was questionable as that was 2/3 star and a hostel on the second half.... with very little to do or eating opportunities, so bring along a good book.

    Another amazing Exodus trip

    Another great trip with Exodus and superb guide, Edward. Beautiful scenery, good walks and the food on the trip was excellent.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    So many amazing moments throughout the trip.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Edward was very patient, knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and a good sense of humour, even if he did laugh at his own jokes.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Take walking boots, even although Sketchers were fine!

    WALKING IN MALLORCA

    I really enjoyed this holiday. It was great to see Majorca and walk in its lovely mountainous regions.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Seeing Port do Soller lit up at night from our bedroom window - and again in the early morning sunshine Staying at Lluc Monastery in the middle of the mountains Enjoying authentic Majorcan picnics on our walks, provided by our wonderful guide

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Edouard was a fantastic guide. He was sensitive to the needs of everyone in the (large) group, and very safety conscious without being overly cautious. He was also great company, good at speaking English and a mine of fascinating information about all things Majorcan.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Take the temperature advice with a bit of a pinch of salt. I expected temps of c20F but in fact it was usually significantly hotter than this and in the upper 20s, almost - but not quite - too hot for comfortable walking, even in October/November! I blame global warming!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    This was a wonderful holiday. My only reservation was having to stay in a less than perfect (and very noisy) hotel, the first 2 nights in Port de Soller, away from the majority of the group. It was great to move to their hotel on the 3rd day. However, I gather this was because I (we) had booked very late and it was the only hotel available - and we were a maximum size group, so this is understandable. My advice would be to book early!

    Great trip with short flight times from the UK.

    This is a great trip with short flight times from the UK. There are lots of quite rough rocky paths and for most people boots would be a good option. Some quite long descents on loose stony paths.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Coastal walk is spectacular and ends at a great place for swimming!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Great local leader with extensive knowledge.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Local flora seems friendly to wearing shorts. Lucc is a very quite place with very basic rooms, maybe take a book or some music! Its pretty easy to self navigate to Soller from Palma (or there airport) as the local bus service is good although it doesn't run late in the evening.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Palma, the capital, is a great place to stay for a few extra days but you won't get to see it on the standard trip.

    WALKING IN MALLORCA

    A varied, well organised walking trip which provided some much needed outdoor relief before the onset of winter. It was great having walks provided every day, and care and attention was put in to ensuring that every day was very different. A really good taster to these beautiful mountains!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Every walk was memorable for different reasons and provided some spectacular views of Mallorca and beyond. 

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eduard was great - organised, passionate and meticulous. He made sure everyone was ok, making time to speak to everyone every day and ensuring that everyone felt confident and supported. He has a real passion for the mountains and the local area, and endeavours to share this with his group. His English is very good (apart from a unfortunate confusion between hurricane and hooligan), and he ensured that the group are constantly kept fully informed. 

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    It can be cold in October/November! Take layers - and make sure you are both windproofed and waterproofed. It was also impossible to get a warm drink in the hotel - I would have taken a kettle and a hot water bottle!  For me, the walks could have been more challenging - but they suited the group, and it was probably accurately classified as a moderate. Eduard did an excellent job of keeping 16 disparate walkers together.  

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    It was a bit disheartening having the hotel in Soller being closed and dismantled literally around us. It meant the hotel had a very depressing air, and there was no bar. Surely they could have waited until their guests had left before packing up?  Please can Exodus offer some more challenging walks in Spain during the school holidays...

    WALKING IN MALLORCA

    The walks were varied and interesting, the guide was brilliant, and the views were spectacular: we felt we experienced a taste of the real Mallorca.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    3 particularly inspirational moments: firstly the beautiful coastal views whilst walking along the Painters' Path on day 2, secondly the spectacular coastal views from up high whilst walking along the Archduke's Bridleway on day 4, and last but not least the content and settings of the wonderful Mallorcan picnics we had most days.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eduardo was very friendly and helpful and good fun. We didn't need a guide book, maps, or phrase book, as he was really knowledgeable about the area and enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge with us. His English was very good. Most days we walked for several hours, but Eduardo set a pace that we could all manage. His Mallorcan picnics are legendary.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    This was our first organised walking holiday. We appreciated that pretty well everything was planned for us: the most we had to decide was where to eat on a couple of nights. We were lucky that we met a lovely bunch of fellow walkers who were great company both during the walks and afterwards. We would thoroughly recommend this trip.

    MALLORCA: SIERRA TRAMUNTANA

    A delightful week on a beautiful island. The walks offered a rich variety of landscapes, from gentle meandering paths along clifftops with views down to a turquoise sea, to pretty routes through ancient olive groves, to dramatic ascents up limestone crags. I went in April because I wanted late spring colours and I was not disappointed.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    I agree with my fellow traveller John Croker that the mountainside picnics, complete with explanation of the local produce we were enjoying, were a high point each day. I hope to remember for a long time the details of the guide's explanation of the olive harvest and pressing. And I know I will not forget watching the griffon vultures circling overhead - who was watching whom?

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eduard is one of the very best. Born and bred in Mallorca, and yet also having walked most parts of the globe, he combined a genuine passion for his island with a gentle humility and humour; he was scrupulous in his attention to detail, and yet led with a light touch, mindful of everyone's preferences and needs; he was superbly knowledgeable of the island's flora, fauna and history; and he was greeted warmly wherever we went. He definitely added to my enjoyment of the trip.

    MALLORCA: SIERRA TRAMUNTANA

    This was an extremely enjoyable trip visually and culturally. Our guide was outstanding. My only proviso was that the C grade description was somewhat exaggerated. This was a pity as the guide was more than capable of fulfilling any grading required. The quality of the walking was excellent. 

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Lunches of local produce on the mountain side.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Quite superb. His knowledge, enthusiasm and pride in his environment were infectious. You will enjoy being with Eduard Casajuana Godoy.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    There were 2 hard days, 1 moderate and 3 easy walks. A further full hard day would for me have made a memorable trip into an outstanding one. I really enjoyed the trip and would like to visit these mountains again.

    MALLORCA: SIERRA TRAMUNTANA

    This is the second time I have done this trip as I love the island and its diversity and more than that I love the Exodus trekking holiday.  The accommodation is in 3 locations all entirely different and with a strong Majorcan flavour to each.  Food traditional, interesting and varied.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The views are amazing.  Coastlines, blue skies, wonderful coves and beaches, mountains at each and every turn, all diverse and never boring vistas.  The trekking at C grade is manageable and the guide we had produced the most amazing picnics enjoyed during the trek in beautiful outdoor places. 

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eduard, having met him twice now, is so helpful, kind and encouraging.  No-one is left behind on the trek, the pace is just right.  He is friendly, professional and keen to ensure all the party enjoyed themselves.  Excellent leader.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Go........if you enjoy a slightly tropical environment with excellent walking and great views and certainly travel to the island from the UK is easy with only a short transfer from the airport.  Take a small extra bag in your luggage for the overnight stop at Balix Farm.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Superb all round trip - the only Exodus trip I have been on twice and would definitely go yet another time!!

    MALLORCA: SIERRA TRAMUNTANA

    The walking and scenary in Majorca was fantastic, not maybe your first thought for a trekking holiday but having been on a few trekking holidays in the Alps it was well worth a trip here.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Not sure there was one, but just the variation in scenary from the mountains, the coastal walks and views and the quaint mountain villages. A night in a tradtional Majorcan farmhouse was definately memorable. The fresh orange juice and the picnics again things to rmemeber and recommend.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    The leader was amazing. Very passionate and knowledgeable about all things Majorca. It was the first trip I had been on where the leader had been a local and their knowledge and love of the area was certainly something that set him apart from the others.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Yes check what grade the walking is and assess your abilities. I enjoyed the holiday and the people on the trip but most of them were surprised that it was a C grade walk and were not really prepared for the level of fitmess etc needed.

    Walking in Mallorca

    I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. I had only chosen it as the dates fitted in with subsequent travel in Spain and Morocco. I knew little about Mallorca apart from the trip notes but was keen to do some hiking. We had a really cohesive group which definitely helped with enjoyment each day. Although I had 3 weeks of further travel after this hike, I could have easily returned to Australia after the 8 days totally satisfied. I would highly recommend this trip!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    I really enjoyed walking each day in amongst amazing mountain scenery and then finishing each day off with a swim in the Mediterranean. Our traditional Mallorcan picnic lunches were also a highlight, with Eduard providing different supplies each day to expose us to a wide variety of Mallorcan cheeses, meats and vegetables. Most days involved a hike in the mountains with a chance to wander around a different village. I also enjoyed the couple of stops for fresh juice and delicious cakes.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eduard was an exceptional leader. His deep knowledge of the history of Mallorca along with all sorts of fascinating information on the local flora and fauna made each walk all the more interesting. He was friendly and sensitive and his passion for this island was evident throughout the tour.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Make sure you are fit enough for a moderate grade. Initially I expected the pace to be a little slower and was concerned about managing, but as the ascents became steeper, Eduard slowed the pace accordingly. I found the walk on day 2 quite challenging and I believe a few others did too.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    My only disappointment was that we ran out of time to swim at Cala Deia. I also felt we had too much spare time at Lluc monastery on the last day. I understand that this was probably due to plane times but , I would have preferred to head off first thing in the morning. My only recommendation might be to leave a little earlier each day, to give us more time in the afternoons to explore the villages we visited. Oh, we were lucky to be in the motel at Puerto Soller right on the beach....I understand that this is not the usual hotel. This hotel was in a fantastic position and would recommend that this is used all the time.

    MALLORCA: SIERRA TRAMUNTANA

    An excellent trip - nice mixture of seaside and mountains - walking not too difficult.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Missing the tram in Soller by 30 seconds on day 2 - the guide did a wonderful switch to "Plan B" to get us to the start of the walk!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Excellent - very good local knowledge!

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Relax and enjoy this very interesting part of Mallorca.

    A great week away walking

    This was my first walking holiday with Exodus and the itinerary for the week was fantastic. The walks were varied with diverse scenery from mountain peaks to coastal walks. I particularly enjoyed the Mallorcan picnics during our walks. Eduard, our local tour leader, had a lot of knowledge which he shared with us enthusiastically. 

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Reaching the summit of Puig d'en Galileu on day 7. It was a steep but rapid ascent and I thought it was a suitable and rewarding way of ending the trip on a high peak. 

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eduard is a highly experienced, genuine and caring tour leader. He was dedicated to providing the best experience he can whilst we were on the trip. His light-hearted humour made the trip very enjoyable!

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Bring loose change with you for freshly squeezed orange/lemon juice served at farmhouses. Sa Fonda restaurant, 5 minutes from Lluc monastery serves excellent food. The restaurant provides free wi-fi (wi-fi access is payable at the monastery).Buy 5L of water from nearby shops around Puerto Soller. It is much cheaper (approximately 1 euro) then buying small bottles and more environmentally friendly.

    MALLORCA: SIERRA TRAMUNTANA

    A lovely area with superb mountain & coastal views. Very friendly people. Marvelous food.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The gorgeous setting of the Baltix farm house with many vultures soaring overhead. We could have stayed there forever.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eduard was a superb leader, second to none! He was born and bred on the island and has intimate knowledge of its history and ecology. He is very passionate about his native land and is keen to preserve it. His outdoor skills are first class. He is a very caring and humerous person and was great company for the week.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Be aware it can rain! Take good waterproofs!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    We had a great week and would heartily recomend the trip.

    Walking in Mallorca

    This was our first experience of an Exodus holiday and we enjoyed it hugely. We did not know what to expect or if we were up to the walking. Now we know, we'll maybe look at a higher grade next time, as it is our intention to go again. The Exodus organisation was very good and the quality of the guide excellent. If he could be faulted at all, it would be his desire to explain anything and everything Mallorcan to us. He took great pride in providing typical local picnic lunches and went out of his way to arrange authentic evening meals.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Getting to the top of our first major peak on the second day. Having a swim in the Med on the fourth day after a coastal walk with excellent views, especially as this was October 30th.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eduard was a very good leader. We always felt safe with him and he kept us all together when it was necessary. His enthusiasm for his local island was endless.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Pack your swimming costume. When at the Lluc monastery take a good book to read during the free time in late afternoon. Also at Lluc, try to eat your evening meal at Ernesto's restaurant at the top of the car-park - the one with the blue and white awning. If the group is of sufficient number, he can be persuaded to put on a gourmet meal at a very reasonable price.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    We benefited from a hotel change and ended up on the promenade at Puerto Soller in Hotel Eden. Exodus should try to use this hotel in future.

    Mallorca

    Excellent trekking trip with good evening entertainment.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Mallorca was a complete surprise........what a fabulous island.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eduard made the holiday. Very passionate about the Island. He organised the walks, picnics, dinner, transportation etc etc. Everything ran very smoothly.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Watch out for red wine at dinner.......after 6 days, my liver is feeling the effects.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    One of the best holidays I have ever been on.

    MALLORCA: SIERRA TRAMUNTANA

    Mallorca was a complete revelation. I had not expected anywhere that peaceful or green.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    When I arrived in Puerto Soller, I sat on my hotel room balcony, to the right was the beautiful bay, and in front was the mountains. We spent the whole week with views like that. The picnics during the walks were another real highlight. I don't eat bread so picnic lunches are usually a trial. Not here. Eduardo would supply the traditional mediterranean food, so there was plenty of fruit, vegetables, local cheeses, chorizo, sobrassada, nuts, olives, pate..

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eduardo really loved the mountains and had a passion for the walking that was infectious. My only small criticism would be that his english was sometimes difficult for me to understand. He was very helpful when I wanted to miss one of the walks and explore the town of Soller.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Don't be put off by Majorca's reputation.  Make sure you take the time to explore both Soller and Puerto Soller, they are both worth the time to explore. If going in the autumn/winter take extra rain protection like over capes. Even heavy duty rainjackets were difficult to dry out. 

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    I would like to have reordered the trip and stayed at Lluc monastery during the week not the weekend. At the weekend it was very crowded and touristy, with motorcycles on the roads. Luckily we were in the mountains much of the time, but Lluc during the week and Balitx at the weekend would have worked better for me.

    Walking in Mallorca = code TST

    An excellent holiday. Great guide, lovely walks and a good group. Walking 6 continuous days was enough but you are free to have a rest day or two if you want. Weather was perfect for walking - mainly sunny but not hot. Walks were very varied and the scenery was beautiful. Very well organised.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    My favourite walks were from the Puerto Soller base. The walk to Cala Tuent on the transfer day was my favourite capped off with a very refreshing swim in the sea. The mountain walks were well worth the ascent with stunning views.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Edward was great, good fun, very informative and well organised. His good contacts everywhere ensured we were well looked after. There is very little he doesn't know about olives.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Don't be put off by the second walk. It is the hardest on paper but the ascent was made easier by very good gradual paths

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Our hotel in Puerto Soller was changed from Eden Nord to Eden. This was not a problem as the Eden is a very nice hotel and situated right on the sea front. At Lluc, Ernesto at the farthest café/bar, the other side of the car park was very hospitable and provided 2 wonderful very good value meals during our stay.

    MALLORCA: SIERRA TRAMUNTANA

    The accommodation was well chosen and very varied and gave a good insight into the area.   Food excellent

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Walking in over 33C with humidity of 90%, something I had not experienced before and climbing a peak on the last day of walking

    What did you think of your group leader?

    A truely professional leader and with great knowledge of flora and fauna and passion for his island.  Could not recommend him highly enough

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Try this island, it is so beautiful and green and there is much to see and to experience.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    It was a week which I enjoyed from beginning to end and appreciated the variety of accommodaiton and venues and walks.  It is a special place and everyone tried so hard to make our holiday memorable.
